So I'm sure you're all totally stuffed from my Bloody Mary pizza, but stay with me cuz this next one is just as amazing. This pizza is inspired by a martini! It actually took me a bit of time to figure out what kind of cocktail I could base my next pizza on. As soon as I thought about doing this series, I knew I wanted to do a bloody mary pizza, and my final sweet pizza was pretty obvious one too. However, I struggled with finding a nice transition piece between the two. I flipped through tons of pins and websites before I finally settled on the ever classic martini. However, once I decided the type of cocktail, I was then faced with the challenge of how to execute it... I mean the bloody mary was pretty simple, vodka sauce and toppings from the cocktail... but a martini is so quintessentially simple that I wasn't sure if I could successfully turn it into a pizza. So I did what any true foodie does, I winged it. And wow, it turned out wayyyy better than I could have expected.
Basically, I just tossed all of the martini ingredients into a saucepan with some butter and used that as a sauce. Pretty simple, but hot dang. I'm convinced that gin, olive brine, and garlic are the key ingredients to success and happiness.
